The Allan Hancock College men's basketball team will start the 2016-17 season ranked No. 20 in the California Community College Men's Basketball Coaches Association's Southern California Preseason Poll. The Bulldogs are tied with Western State Conference opponent Ventura at No. 20. Ventura is one six teams ranked in the preseason polls that are scheduled to play the Bulldogs. Hancock will open the season on Friday, November 4, at the three-day Cuesta Rabobank Tournament. The Bulldogs open on Nov. 4 at 4 p.m. against College of the Sequoias, the No. 11 team in the Northern California Preseason Poll. Hancock will play West Hills, the No. 14 team in the north, the following day, Saturday, Nov. 5 at 5 p.m. Other ranked teams already on Hancock's schedule include: Cerritos, No. 7 in California and 13 in Southern California; East Los Angeles, No. 8 in California and No. 3 in Southern California; Cuesta, No. 15 in Southern California. Tyson Aye returns for his fourth season as head coach of the men's basketball team. Guard Shane Carney (5'9''-PG), who averaged 12.0 points and 3.3 assists per game, as well as forward Marcellus Garrick, who averaged 8.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, are key returners for the Bulldogs. Hancock features talented local players in Lompoc High School graduate Torey Sims, and former Santa Maria High School stars Troy Bolden (6'4''-G) and Shemarr Parker. Bolden and Parker are redshirt freshmen. Three transfers, forward Deon Whiteside (6'7''-F), who averaged 4.2 points and 1.8 rebounds for Northeast Community College in Nebraska; forward Kevawn Lord (G), who averaged 5.2 points at Cuesta College; and 6'8" post player Dominic Jackson, who transferred to Hancock after averaging 5.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per game for Central Wyoming College, will also play key roles this season for the Bulldogs. Hancock's home opener will be during the second annual Home Motors Tournament from Nov. 18-20. City College of San Francisco, the defending state champion, is the top ranked team in the State Preseason Poll. Saddelback, Las Positas, Yuba and Chaffey round out of the five. Saddleback, Chaffey, East Los Angeles, Fullerton and El Camino-Compton make up the top five in the Southern California Preseason Poll. Courtesy of: hancockcollege.edu

He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby(6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back champion... [read more]
He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby (6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back championships. But his size was in question so he opted for the juco route. The journey has paid off with the commitment to the Sooners. He was contacted by OU assistant coach Chris Crutchfield last Sunday and the visit was confirmed Tuesday evening after speaking with head coach Lon Kruger. Lazenby visited Penn State earlier this week and was set to visit Utah on Monday but never ruled out committing to the Sooners if everything fell into place. OU is getting a real OKPreps feel to its team right now. The 2016 class saw Kristian Doolittle. The 2017 class has Scout 100 prospects Trae Young and Brady Manek. And now here comes a blast from the past with Lazenby. 'That would be a great opportunity if it happens,' said Lazenby to Sooners Illustrated on Tuesday. 'Trae Young - I mean you don't have to say much about him. Kristian Doolittle is a big, strong attacker. And everything I've heard about Brady is he's a sharpshooter with size.' Lazenby is hoping to be another piece to that puzzle. He was around 200 pounds coming out of high school and believes adding the 15 pounds in the last two years is a huge reason why his recruitment took off here recently. Lazenby will be a junior for the upcoming season but does have a redshirt season available to him as well. The addition of Lazenby means OU has one open scholarship remaining if Kruger and company decide to pursue another junior college or graduate transfer at this stage. Courtesy of: scout.com
